OWAAT means Cyprus has “Zero Tolerance” of Abuse Against Women.
❋ OWAAT goals are aimed at empowering all abused women to prevent their violence by protecting their life and privacy. OWAAT objectives guide women how to place the law in their hands, become self-represented litigants, and obtain access to court for no contact civil protections against their abuser.
❋ OWAAT encourages Cyprus courts to support OWAAT goals and objectives by adopting web-based “Self-help Forms” and instructions for self-represented litigants to print off, fill-in-the-blanks, e-sign and e-file in any Cyprus court with proper jurisdiction to grant civil equitable remedies, and as justice so requires.
❋ OWAAT provides court web-links as model, modern court web-based management systems. Many EU Member-state courts and all U.S. courts websites share Self-Help forms and related links to court provided civil protection complaint and instructions to assist self-represented litigants.
❋ OWAAT operated Complaint Clinics at the local level. Village of Kokkinotrimithia and Sisters of St. Joseph’s Convent, Old City, Nicosia, opened OWAAT Complaint Centers in October 2014. Community volunteers pool resources for their local OWAAT Complaint Center. Business leaders and professionals offer valuable time, expertise and specialized skills. Municipalities and nonprofits donate facilities and computer technology. Growing networks of OWAAT volunteers sustain Complaint Centers for abused women in their communities to learn how to assert their fundamental human rights in court, in their own voice.
❋ OWAAT IS A Sustainable Community-Court Collaboration
